System demonstrates the unprecedented opportunities of administration, scalability, and individual adaptation of virtual workplaces for businesses of all sizes. With this system, the IT organization is a real possibility to separate the workplace as a complex software from the devices and from binding to a specific point of placement. VMware View includes technologies that improve scalability and performance of virtual desktops, while reducing time and maintenance costs. Also, features such as virtual print, multimedia streams redirection, offline desktop system and the parallel connection of Windows Terminal Services sessions will allow the end user to fully enjoy the advantages of virtual desktops.
Create a seamless desktop experience with VMware View 4.6, the industry's leading purpose-built solution for delivering desktops as a managed service. Transform application and desktop management into an efficient, automated process by providing a modern, flexible desktop enabling desktop administrators to increase control while reducing the total cost of desktop ownership by 50%. Provide end-users with a rich, consistent, high performance desktop experience and bring the power of the datacenter and VMware vSphere to your desktop environment.
Key Features and Capabilities
Windows 7 Support
Increase the speed and reduce the cost and complexity of migration by delivering Windows 7 as a virtual desktop with VMware View. Add in ThinApp to help save the cost of application porting by virtualizing legacy applications to deploy on Windows 7 desktops.
Simplified Desktop Management
Desktop and application virtualization breaks the bonds between the operating system, applications, user data and hardware, eliminating the need to install or manage desktop environments on end-user devices. From a central location you can deliver, manage and update all of your Windows desktops and applications in minutes. VMware View makes the testing, provisioning and support of applications and desktops much easier and less costly.
Streamlined Application Management
VMware ThinApp application virtualization separates applications from underlying operating systems for increased compatibility and streamlined application management. Applications packaged with ThinApp can be run in the datacenter where they are accessible through a shortcut on the virtual desktop, reducing the size of the desktop image and minimizing storage needs. Since ThinApp isolates and virtualizes applications, multiple applications or multiple versions of the same applications can run on the virtual desktops without conflict. Applications are assigned centrally through View Manager, ensuring that all user desktops are up-to-date with the latest application versions.
Automated Desktop Provisioning
Through View Manager 4.6, VMware View provides a single management tool to provision new desktops or groups of desktops, and an easy interface for setting desktop policies. Using a template, you can customize virtual pools of desktops and easily set policies, such as how many virtual machines can be in a pool, or logoff parameters. This feature enables greater IT efficiency by automating and centralizing desktop provisioning activities.
Advanced Virtual Desktop Image Management
Based on the mature Linked Clone technology, View Composer enables the rapid creation of desktop images from a golden image. Updates implemented on the parent image can be easily pushed out to any number of virtual desktops in minutes, greatly simplifying deployment, upgrades and patches while reducing desktop operational costs. With the core components of the desktop being managed separately the process does not affect user settings, data or applications, so the end-user remains productive on a working desktop, even while changes are being applied to the master image.
Superior End User Experience
Address the broadest range of use cases and deployment options with VMware View's PCoIP desktop display protocol, and deliver a high-performance desktop experience, even over high latency and low bandwidth connections. The adaptive capabilities of the PCoIP display protocol are optimized to deliver virtual desktops to users on the LAN or over the WAN. VMware View gives users access to their virtual desktops over a wide variety of devices, without any performance degradation. End-users enjoy a seamless desktop experience with the ability to play rich media content, choose from various monitor configurations and easily access locally attached peripherals such as scanners and mass storage devices.
Maintain control over data and intellectual property by keeping it secure in the datacenter. End-users access their personalized desktop, complete with applications and data, from any location, at any time without jeopardizing the corporate security policies. Integration with vShield Endpoint enables offloaded and centralized anti-virus and anti-malware (AV) solutions. This integration helps to eliminate agent sprawl and AV storm issues while minimizing the risk of malware infection and simplifying AV administration. VMware View also supports integration with RSA SecurID for two-factor authentication requirements.
Availability and Scalability
VMware View delivers high availability, with no single point of failure. VMware High Availability (HA) ensures automatic failover and provides pervasive, cost-effective protection within your virtualized desktop environment to ensure service level agreements are met and downtime is minimized. Advanced clustering capabilities on the physical and virtual layers provide enterprise-class scalability with no single point of failure. VMware View can also be integrated with existing systems management platforms already deployed within the enterprise.
View Client with Local Mode
The VMware View Client with Local Mode increases productivity by allowing end-users to run managed virtual desktops locally or in the datacenter through the same administration framework. Simply download a virtual desktop onto the local client device where the operating system, applications and data can be accessed with or without a network connection. Offline users can synchronize desktop changes back to the datacenter when they return to the network. The entire contents of the desktop are secure within an encrypted desktop image while all existing IT security policies for that virtual desktop continue to be applied and enforced regardless of network connection.
